I was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 months ago. (No warning, but found during my mammogram)
Within one month I had an ultrasound, biopsy and surgery. I was told it was THE nastiest and most aggresive type of cancer.
I chose not to have chemo therapy because my kidneys are failing. I chose to have radiation therapy, and am at peace with my decision.
I am trying to make more people aware of breast cancer by adding it to my passion of making cards.
I bought a package of Breast Cancer napkins. I take the napkin apart from its backing and cut it into four squares. Then use decorative scissors to shape the image.
I glue it to the front of my card and add little pearls to each corner. I glue the BC ribbon logo inside (which I printed on my computer)
I then enclose a pink latex bracelet that I purchased from the BC site, and send to my friends who have had BC, or to ones who want to wear one to honor me.
My card is very inexpensive to make, but carries a huge message.

Christina says ...
This is one message I am honoured to help spread for you Ethel and I am so sorry that you have to suffer this aweful disease.
This "C" word strikes fear into the hearts of many people and the more research that is done to help eradicate it the better.
I wish you all the very best and I am sure many of the visitors to the website will join me in this wish.
There is a link to Breast Cancer Awareness on the website and by clicking the link you will donate Mammograms to other women who are also fighting this disease.
Please go to Cards 4 Charities in the NavBar to your left, and you don't need to donate a card to do your bit.... just click the link.
All it will take is your time and then be thankful if it doesn't affect you.
